    Steve Ditko and Don Heck - Tales of Suspense #47, page 22 Original Art (Marvel, 1963). Just eight issues after his debut, Iron Man faces... the Melter! And in order to beat him, Tony Stark will have to become... Aluminum Man! This last page of the story features a great shot of ol' Shellhead, and a nice wrapup of the plot. "It's mighty frustrating," muses Stark, "I can't be sure whether the Melter drowned or escaped to menace me another time!" Hmmmm, we wonder... Don Heck leans heavy on the brush in rendering Steve Ditko's snappy pencils, and the result is broadly dramatic in the Merry Marvel manner. The image area measures 12.5" x 18.5" and is in Excellent condition, with light overall wear. C'mon, sock it to Shellhead! You know you want to.
